Are you licensed, bonded and insured?

What is your scope of work?

We have worked on a variety of projects over the past 17 years. From entire gut renovations of residential homes, to building commercial properties, to landscaping projects, our scope of work is extensive and diverse. If you are curious to see if we can meet your needs, please contact us.

Can I afford your services?

We are pleased to offer competitive pricing for our services. Many of our customers are surprised to find our quotes are well within their budget. Of course, the type of materials and the level of detail in your project can make the price vary greatly. However, we have worked with a wide variety of budgets.

Where do you operate?

Currently we serve the Portland, Oregon metro area as well as portions of the Oregon Coast. The main cities that we work in are Downtown Portland, Lake Oswego, West Linn, Wilsonville, Tualatin, Tigard, Sherwood, Newberg, McMinnville and Lincoln City.

Do you do in-home consultations?

Yes, we offer in-home consultations. Our professionals will visit your home, assess the scope of work, and complete a written report that details the work needed. 

Do you offer handyman services?

We do offer handyman services on a case by case basis. Priority is given to clients that have used our remodeling services in the past.

Do you obtain permits needed for work?

Yes, we work with your local planning department to secure the proper permits needed to complete the job to ensure that all work is done to code.

Do you work on the Oregon Coast?

Yes, we have renovated homes on the Oregon Coast in the past in towns like Lincoln City. We are pleased to offer our services to your primary or secondary home on the coast. 

Can you help with landscaping too?

Yes, we assist homeowners with the landscaping needs related to their renovation project. Whether you need tree removal services, a newly sodded yard, or general cleanup, we can include these services in your renovation plans.

When can you start my project?

Typically, it takes a few weeks to get you on our schedule. However, before getting started we will have to do the following:

  • Sign a contract
  • Down payment (typically 50%)

Once this is done, we will add you to the schedule to begin work.

How long will my project take?

If you are renovating, you are probably familiar with the saying “expect it to be twice as expensive and take twice as long!” To prevent this from happening to you, we’ve created a unique work process to streamline your process.

Firstly, it’s important to have everything chosen out before you even start (knowing the smallest thing like paint colors and faucets are key!).

Secondly, we have great relationships with subcontractors and can have them out quickly to assess anything that is outside our scope of work.

Finally, we find out your needs, as the homeowner, and determine if your expectations are realistic with your ideal project timeline.

Do you use subcontractors?

Yes, we work with subcontractors when needed. For example, we always sub out plumbers, electricians, roofers, and engineers. These services are required more often than you may realize, so it’s best to meet with us first to find out who exactly we need to have on your project team.

Is there an additional cost for working with subcontractors?

We typically require an extra 15-20% for working with subcontractors to manage their timelines, invoices, etc. for you. We handle all subcontractor paperwork in-house and manage the process, which makes your life easier.

What do you pride yourselves on most?

We are a small business, and we have all worked together since 2003, so we really pride ourselves on being honest and upfront, which has resulted in happy customers over the years. Our slogan is “On time and On Budget” and we really try to meet this expectation with every client.
